I confess I don't know this game but it looks impressive.
The base game is on sale on Steam right now for $11 which seems like a steal.

Nice surprise. Got this in a Humble Monthly a while back and have yet to play it.

The supported list is a bit strange. Only 2019+ MBPs and iMacs? I expect some older ones work fine and that list is just what they were able to explicitly test.

Seems to run fine on my 2018 Mac Mini - granted it's got an eGPU, using an officially supported card (Vega 56). Not surprising but it does show that an unsupported Mac can work.

Speaking of unsupported, I am still hanging on to Mojave, because it is usually more Steam-friendly. But Frostpunk, finally actually released on Mac, apparently doesn’t support Mojave! But has anyone played it successfully on that OS?

Geez, I wish this would start a trend of allegedly Mac-compatible games (e.g. Diluvion, Two Worlds II, etc.) actually getting updated as well!

The Mac GPU requirements are way higher than what's required on Windows. Apparently, porting the game to Metal was no easy task.

LOL WTF was I talking about. My main computer is a late 2015 iMac anyway. The other is a 2018 MacBook Air. So, I am out of the running, except via GeForce Now.

Works just fine on my late 2013 iMac under Windows, but crashes right to desktop in Macos 10.14.  Screw this.
